MTV's attempt to return to the video-showing glory days of its youth, FNMTV
, premieres tonight
, and you're expected to be excited. The Pete Wentz-hosted show is supposedly focusing on Brand! New! Music! You've! Never! Even! Heard!, but that's, of course, a lie. Confirmed acts for this summer? Panic At the Disco, Snoop Dogg, The Pussycat Dolls, Flo Rida, The Ting Tings, Lil' Wayne, Duffy, Boys Like Girls, and Vampire Weekend. Basically, if you were ever going to care about those artists, you already do. You've either flipped on a Clear Channel station once or twice, been to an Urban Outfitters, seen commercials because your stupid roommate won't go halvsies on DVR, googled the term "4 minute dick joke" for giggles and stumbled upon Flo Rida accidentally, had ears or used the internet in the past 12 months. Regardless, none of those artists or their songs are new to you if you have even a vague awareness of music, and neither are any of the videos Pete Wentz and Viacom will be trying to shove down your throat tonight. Salut!
